Ukrainian Media?

Has anyone found any Ukrainian media (TV shows, movies, music, ect.) that they have found helpful with their learning? I'm trying to really immerse myself before my trip to Ukraine next month, so I would greatly appreciate some suggestions. Thanks!

I can offer you to watch and read

BUT in all these channels sometimes you may hear Russian with Ukrainian.

I think it is more than enough for beginning :)

Океан Ельзи is a great band! Не твоя війна and Земля are great songs by them.

http://www.bbc.com/ukrainian is also a great website for consuming current news.

Thanks, I will definitely check out the BBC link! I love Океан Ельзи, especially Незалежність. Spotify recently added a few more of their albums and they released a new single (Життя починається знов). It's one of my new favorites!

I'm not sure if they're in Ukrainian or Russian but I do know Ukraine makes their own versions of game shows such as Wipeout - named БУМ, Битва українських міст and Brain Wall/Hole in the Wall named Море по коліно. It could be worth it, even if just to get familiar with the language using a tv show you've probably encountered in English at some point - I think there are clips somewhere on Youtube. Also, I believe Алексеев sings mostly in Ukrainian. Speaking of songs, I don't know if you want to go this route, but a lot of Ukraine's Junior Eurovision songs are mostly in Ukrainian... speaking of Eurovision, the Russian 2009 entry can be found in Ukrainian here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v85qMUhHQ4c - which is about the best I can do for music.

There's also Ukraine's Got Talent - sadly I don't remember what the title is, I just remember it exists.
